Cooking with Pumpkin – Cookbook Announcement!

I’ve been waiting to formally announce this forever.

It’s been two years that I’ve kept it to myself, but two years feels like forever.

I wrote a second cookbook called Cooking With Pumpkin: Recipes That Go Beyond the Pie.

Cooking With Pumpkin: Recipes That Go Beyond the Pie by Averie Sunshine

About a month after I finished writing Peanut Butter Comfort in late 2012 I was contacted about writing a pumpkin recipes book.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I don’t know whether I was insane or just thought I was superwoman to say yes coming off the heels of one book and literally jumping right into the next. But I said yes and spent the remainder of 2012 and early 2013 writing Cooking with Pumpkin.

Although I was done writing it in the spring of 2013, I just missed the cutoff to have it ready for a fall 2013 launch. No one launches a pumpkin book at any time other than the fall because it would make no seasonal sense, so I waited. Another year.

Now, finally, the fall is upon us and my book is here! It’s available for pre-order on Amazon! It will be in stores like Barnes and Noble and Costco starting October 6, 2014.

The book is filled with over 50 of my favorite pumpkin recipes, and nearly every recipe has a glossy image accompanying it. I did all my own interior photography as well as the cover.

While there are plenty of desserts and sweeter treats, there’s also a savory chapter and a drinks chapter.

Some of my favorite recipes include:

Pumpkin Monkey Bread with Caramel Glaze

Whew. And there’s about 40 more. It’s surreal looking back at these photos because some I took nearly 2 years ago and now, finally, I can show them to you.

Looking back I don’t know how I made 50 different recipes using pumpkin, but I did and pumpkin lovers, you’re going to be in your glory.

I would greatly, greatly appreciate your support. Please head over to Amazon, spend $13 bucks, and purchase your copy of the book. Thank you so very much!! I know I have the best blog readers out there! Thank you all!

I have made so many of your pumpkin recipes and I can’t wait to make more. Also, sorry for my absence on your page. I have been so tired and my business is just thriving so I have been busier that usual, with kids, hubby, job, etc! I will let you know when I get it and what I make first! xoxo

    • Thanks as always Michele for your support and happy to hear you’ve been busy working on things with your business and of course tending to your lovely family – no apologies necessary! :) And yes tell me what you make first! xo

  4. Eeeeeek congratulations!!!! Last year I used pumpkin for the first time (I know I’m a little slow haha!) and I’m a complete convert, this book will be perfect for giving me more pumpkin ideas!!

  5. CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!!!! I am soooo thrilled for you!! I’m heading over to Amazon right now and buying my copy! Can’t wait to open it up! Here’s to many MANY more books and successes! You rock!! ♥

  6. The book looks amazing Averie! :) Congratulations! I love your blog btw !

  7. Oh my, a whole cookbook dedicated to pumpkin recipes — I NEED this! :)

    Congrats to you Averie. You’re an inspiration.

  8. Congrats! All the pictures are gorgeous! I love pumpkin. :)

  9. Congratulations! You can never have enough pumpkin!

  10. Extending the BIGGEST CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU, Averie! You absolutely deserve the utmost success that comes your way, and I’m glad you were crazy enough to delve right into Cookbook Numero Dos right after the first because I couldn’t see anyone else writing this book but you! Your recipes are always so successful, inventive and INSPIRING. I read your blog and instantly feel the itch to get back into the kitchen and create something simple yet stunningly divine. Can’t wait to get my hands on this copy! Congrats friend, I puffy heart you!

  11. Congratulations Averie!! I’ve been waiting for your announcement for a while. I noticed on your Pinterest profile that you were the author of both your PB & a pumpkin cookbook coming out this fall… I’m SO excited to see it!! And somehow, I still think you have a third one in you. :)

    • Thank you and number three, no, cannot even imagine it. Omg, I would die. :) I would need a FT nanny, chauffeur, dishwasher, grocery shopper, personal assistant and every other role I end up doing normally but when writing a book, it’s all just supremely intense!

      • I totally believe it. It’s hard enough keeping up with a blog, but adding a cookbook on top of that?? You’re my hero! Maybe one day when your daughter is old enough to drive so you don’t have to act as the chauffeur… Or do the grocery shopping… And when she’s tall enough to help with the dishes. It could work! ;)
